The garland of pennants: the material

Supplies

  • Fabric falls with various patterns of 34 cm wide minimum
  • 3 m of lace or thin ribbon
  • 10 big pearls
  • A cardboard sheet or strong paper
  • A pot of varnish glue
  • Brush brush
  • Pencil
  • Scissors

The garland of pennants: step 1

  • Draw the template on the cardboard: a triangle of 12 cm base and 16 cm high.
  • Cut it out on its path.
  • Fold the scraps of fabric in half, upside down, to obtain strips at least 17 cm wide.

The garland of pennants: step 2

  • Place the template on the folded fabric, base of the triangle against the fold.
  • Trace its outline and cut the fabric on the path.
  • Make a dozen different triangles.
  • Thread the beads on the lace and space them about 16 cm.

The garland of pennants: step 3

  • Unfold the fabric triangles and place them between the beads, lace flush with the fold.
  • Glue the glue varnish over its entire surface.
  • Fold the two layers together to glue them on the lace.
  • Tie a fastening loop at both ends of the garland.

The garland of pennants: tips

Tips +

  • Ephemeral version: for a birthday party you can make a garland by stapling triangles of gift papers over a length of bolduc.
  • Sewing version: instead of sticking the fabric triangles you can fix them by making a straight seam just under the lace.
  • Good pearls: be sure to choose beads whose hole is large enough to let the lace or ribbon chosen.
